Best thing about Blue Max was the very competitive prices on Surly cans across the board. This was the place I was told to stock up, and wasn't disappointed.

The beer selection winds around the first aisle, around the corner and opposite the coolers in the back. First up were a few Belgian coolers, where there were a few traditional lambics but not many. Noticed Hanssens Exp. Raspberry here, but no Gueuze or Kriek for example. Staff was helpful in directing me to a numbered cooler where the Surly was (#10 I think). Current seasonals like Overrated and Bitter Brewer (which Heritage hadn't received yet). A dozen Jolly Pumpkin varieties, which was impressive. Noticed a sale shelf with discounted winter seasonals and obscure imports.

I overheard the staff recommending wild/sour ales, and pointed them to the JP's. Two beer guys were on the floor, helping customers, stocking, and manning the registers. Good service, friendly guys that made themselves available. Lots of senior citizens in here on a saturday afternoon, and I noticed a guy helping a lady to her car with a purchase.

Overall a great store, lots of obscure imports and fresh MN seasonals. A recommended destination.

Blue Max Liquors Minneapolis MN

Visited on during a business trip on a Tuesday around noon. Well worth the time I spent before I had to jump on a plane for home. If you are out by the airport you are probably only fifteen minutes away. Easy to get to you of South 35E.

Vibe – Clean and well lit, but a typical liquor store vibe. Signs tout themselves as best beer selection in Minneapolis. Most beers in coolers. Signs indicating countries. 3.75

Quality – Most beer in coolers. Did not find out dated beer. 4

Service – I was asked twice for if I needed help. Everyone was friendly giving me the time I needed to look around. 4

Selection – Excellent selection. Local breweries well represented. A tremendous variety of foreign brews. I was particularly impressed with their selection of English beers. They had all four varieties of the J.W. Lees Harvest Ale (regular and three barrel aged varieties) in at least four different vintages. Purchased some Surly Furious and Pentagram, Fulton War & Peace and Jolly Pumpkin Bam Noire 4.5

Food – N/A

Price – $$$ - average to slightly above on the pricing.
